Rain Connolly will do anything to break the hex that binds her powers and makes her an outcast in the supernatural world. But when fate drops the answer to her prayers into her lap, she can't help but fall for the sexy werewolf who can end her curse. The problem is what she needs him to do could cost him his life.
Can a witch and a werewolf overcome their haunted pasts to find love? Or did fate bind their hearts only to rip them apart?

When your fate-bound is what you hate most in the world...
Chase knows his true mate is out there. But he never expects to feel the undeniable connection to a woman who happens to be a witch. It's a cruel joke for fate to play on him since a group of witches were responsible for nearly destroying his life. It won't be easy for him to get over his hatred for witches, even if his mate is the most enticing woman he's ever met.
And Rain isn't exactly thrilled to be on the receiving end of attention from the hot werewolf. She is cursed and the only way to regain control of her magic is by requesting the one thing she knows Chase will never give her. To make matters worse, Rain's ex is on the hunt for the pair and won't stop until he gets revenge. Their happily-ever-after won't be a cake walk.
This was sort of an enemies-to-lovers story in the beginning. But it quickly turned into a pair united against the enemy trying to rip them apart. If you prefer a slow burning romance, this one may not be for you, as it does move pretty fast into romantic territory once the hero discovers the heroine is his one true mate. It definitely moved at a different pace than the first book of the series, not that I minded.
In this installment, we get to see the werewolf pack's second-in-command find his mate. And we also meet a pair of witches who have a difficult past. We get a closer look at how witches and covens operate in this paranormal world, which is fascinating. Story-wise, this one is just as graphic as far as the gory parts, but there seemed to be less of those scenes this time. It was a bit lighter in that regard.
As for the romance, this pair were spicy in the bedroom and sweet outside of it. Their first meeting was hilarious and I loved their banter. Chase was a bad boy hero with a soft heart. A swoon-worthy combination. The conflict was emotional and I felt so terrible for Rain for most of the book. She had suffered so much and was treated pretty badly by those who were afraid of her. It was nice to see her find her happy ending.
I wonder if Snow will also find a mate within the pack. Five stars!
